by their numbers half of obama care. it's actually not going to -- they're cutting right into medicare. they're also cutting right into medicare advantage. isn't that going to lower the reimbursement rates for medicare and push doctors out of the medicare system? >> yeah, they're already leaving in droves from accepting medicare. and they're going to concierge practices, limiting their number of medicare patients they take. they are taking only commercial insurance plans. and many people are taking -- the premier physicians aren't taking any insurance. you just have to send the bill to your insurance company and hope that they pay for that. >> this is a dumb question, what would you have them do? obama dials you up, sees you on "the kudlow report," wants to know what you would do. what would you tell him. >> give everybody at birth a health savings account and that's what i would do -- >> just give it to them. >> it makes everybody a capitalist. and capitalism has been the winning formula -- >> tax free, save it up all those years, the inside build-up. this is what harold ford

care. >> right. and not just choice but choice in the benefits. obama care, if you try to buy up your benefit in obama care, if you go from the bronze plan to the platinum plan, you're not getting a different network in many cases and you're not getting a different drug formula. you're just getting lower co-pays and lower deductibles. in the federal program, you have a real choice. that gives you lower cost options. to get to your question, could they do this now? it would be very hard. it's very late in the game. if they wanted to do something like this, they could get it in place in a couple of months but it wouldn't be ready for january 1st. >> i'm afraid you're right. mike slater, to you, in some sense the biggest headline today, the lead story in "the wall street journal," one of the lead stories in "the new york times" is sticker shock. this time, it's sticker shock for out-of-pocket costs from deductibles, high deductible plans. that's the sticker shock. people are focusing on the premiums. but actually they're going to have to pay a lot more because the deductibles are going t

come up with a policy you can recommend to president obama on the air right now that would be better than the minimum wage. because recall, 40% of unemployed people today are long-term unemployed, disproportionately in the bottom 20% and those people will be hurt by minimum wage increases. but you and i agree that minimum wage people could make more money to support their families better. what's a better policy starting right now that president obama should be talking about instead of what he's doing, which is hurting poor people such they can make more money no matter how much it costs. >> look, just to be clear. i like the question, but i don't agree with the premise. i do think a moderate increase would help. to answer the part of your question that i agree with, here's what i think he should do. the earned income tax is a very important pro work subsidy. this is a good way to help low-wage people. but for childless adults, adults who don't have kids, it's rea y really -- i would increase the childless adult part of the earned income credit so that single folks can make a decent w

anybody wants is a shutdown other than maybe harry reid and president obama distracting from the patient protection and affordable care act. i'm the right wing saying we need to use the full name. but no, the federal government does enough harm to our economy, day in and day out. the last thing we need is keep on additional harm by shutting down the government. i know republicans are absolu absolutely dedicated to fixing the long-term problem. but we certainly don't want a shutdown at all. i know paul ryan. and i think chairman murray are really working together to try to stabilize the situation, come up with something. if we can get some long-term mandatory reforms in exchange for, you know, some sequester relief, maybe plus up some defense, i know people are highly concerned about readiness in our military. and you've got to do a little giving from that standpoint. you need some real structure reform to the long-term mandatory spending programs in order for that deal to work. >> it puts it out past the 2014 election. >> that's they're talking. let's hope nobody throws a poison pill in

wage? the u.s. is right now in the middle of one of the biggest pushes to raise wages that i've seen in 20 years working in this field. president obama has called for a $10 minimum wage hike. but, you know, given the gridlock in washington, the states are starting to act. california approved a $10 minimum wage hike and no sooner had that been inked than a consebive placed it on the ballot to go to $12. the high cost cities are pushing for even higher wages. voters in sea-tac, washington, approved a $15 wage. now cities like chicago and new york are calling for wages of similar levels. i think what's driving this is what president obama called the defining challenge of our time in this economics talk yesterday. the fact is, the restaurant industry noted that the majority of the jobs our economy is creating are in these low payment fields like restaurant and retail. these aren't team jobs if they ever were. now tens of millions of adult americans spend their time cycling through these careers, these jobs. at $9 an hour, they're not sustainable. so what the fast food workers are calling

that may not be the best way to look at it right now. when people talk about obama care they forget about all the positives. the fact that right now for me in college i'm not paying any higher premium. i'm allowed to stay on my parents' health insurance until i'm 26 because of obama care. when i end up finding my own plan which i do plan on doing once i turn 26, i will not be denied for any pre-existing conditions, i'm not going to be denied because i'm a woman, i won't pay any higher charges. i think those are very important things to focus on but back to your point about student loan debt, i don't necessarily see it as a trade-off that way because i know a lot of people will not be able to be covered because of their parents because they're able to stay with them until they're 26 but with student loan, that's something that's tackled in a separate way but putting the two together -- >> i don't know, charlie, it's just expenses. you all have expenses, i got expenses, and i'm just trying to figure out how this is going to work out. look, what do numbers show from this harvard poll,
